As promise, I'm posting pics today of the projects we made at my downline meeting this month. All my ladies who attended are new to my group so I want to make sure I showed them something different that they can do with SU! rather than the standard card or scrapbooking. So I decided to show them our fantastic fabric! We made this so cute, and so practical Book Mark! Again, my photography skill let me down, and I just can not figure out how to take a good picture of this project..trust me, the picture does it NO justice!
We used the awesome Fun Flowers Bigz L Die 121812, Deck the Halls 121716 (winter mini but still available to order) Deck the Halls button (retired, opps, but you could sub Brights/Regals Buttons), Cherry Cobbler C/S and Ink, First Edition DSP 121878, Victoria 5/8" Crochet Trim 118481, Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink Illuminated Top Coat 121084 and a Bone Folder 102300.
All I did was starched the fabric flowers with spray starch, when they were 80% dry I scrunched them up. Ink the paper flowers with Cherry Cobbler, scrunch. For the Cherry C/S flower, curl edges with your bone folder back and forth to break down the fibers till it splits into 2 layers. Un-crumple all flowers and just layer with hot glue. Smooth the paper flowers to make them have a wee bit of glitter bling. Glue onto Ribbon is about 18" long, and glue button on bottom of ribbon to add as a weight for the bookmark.
